Ricca Allen (June 9, 1863 – September 13, 1949) was a Canadian-born stage and film actress. She appeared in more than 50 films between 1913 and 1941.[1]

Allen was born in Victoria, British Columbia,[1] to John Allen of Oakland, California.[2] Allen and her sisters Louise Allen and Ray Allen were popular dancers in the 1880s. For nine years, she performed in a company headed by Nance O'Neil. She later had her own company in vaudeville.[3]

Allen performed at Niblo's Garden for more than five years.[3] Her Broadway credits include Blind Alleys (1924), Up and Down Broadway (1910), Uncle Tom's Cabin (1907), Judith of Bethulia (1904), The Fires of St. John (1904), Hedda Gabler (1904) and Magda (1904).[4]

Allen died in Los Angeles, California.[1]
